Hot Spot : Marvin Rey Montenegro

Sabi nga nila ang bawat larawan na kinukunan ng isang litralista ay may kwento, hindi lamang ito basta-basta na lamang kinukunan at ayun na ok na, sapagkat ang bawat larawan ay may tinatagong kwento kung saan sa simula ang subject (tao) at litralista ang nakakaintindi ngunit paglabas nito sa magkakaroon na ng ibang mensahe.


Isa sa mga bagong nakilala ko sa mundo ng fotograpiya ay si Marvin Rey Montenegro, isang batang anino'y naglalaro lamang sa simula ngunit kinalaunan ay makikita mo sa kanya kung paano siya mag-isip ng isang konsept na naaayon sa model, hindi basta-basta kuha na lamang ng kuha, ika nga nila hindi porke nakaDSLR ka na ay pwede ka ng magmayabang at sabihing "oo photographer ako," ngunit ang batang iyo at kakaiba dahil mapagkumbaba at nakakagulat lang ang tawag niya sa mga ilang litralista ang sensai (na kung saan ay bihira ko na lamang makining nagyon pero kung tigahanga ka ng isang anime malamang alam mo)

Tara kilalanin natin ng husto kung sino nga ba si Marvin Rey Montenegro sa mundo ng Fotografía

What are the pros and cons of being a photographer? Please be specific. 
-no offence pero nangyre talga sa buhay ko ito..

- Pros: I get to do something I did for fun in high school and make money! I can work as much or as little as I want. I've become more well known in my community. I love what I do. I've gotten to meet and bond with some amazing people.
Cons: Running your own business is hard and a pain in the ass. Constantly hustling for business in the beginning is exhausting. Gear is expensive and when it comes to pro photographer, yes you will need the gear (low light performance, FPS, build quality, back ups). You do have to spend money to make money, and when you're starting out, that sucks.

Photography is a great business if you can carve out your spot where you live. You HAVE to be a go-getter. Business will NOT just come to you...you have to go get it. If you don't have that type of personality you'll sink really quickly.

But if you're the type that is great with people, you can be charming and consistently produce a great product, you can go find business & keep up with the creative as well as all the legal/business stuff....then go for it!! It's very rewarding.


I know you like traveling for shoot or even for chill-out, can tell me where is the best place to be to do some shoot? and why there?
- Batanes and Vigan kase po want ko talaga yung presence nang aura nang dramatic film make a story for photo.

What goal are you working towards within your photography and when will you know you have reached it?
-to see my works thru magazines ,blogs, etc but some sensei said to me  "photography is never ending learning " - Makoy Flores


What photographic organizations do you belong to?
For now im in PHOTOGROUNDS then sumasama sa mga ibang funshoots.

Name a photographer you would like to take a portrait of?
January Saga, Lui See, Ramond Cabalhin, Jown Orange


If you weren't a photographer or a multimedia artist, what would you want to be? Why?
- im not MMA but gusto ko lng na isang maging mgaling na Bartender, makabili ng sariling lupa't bahay at maging isang mabuting Ama sa mga anak.

How do you see yourself 20 or 30 yrs from now?
-20 yrs from now. I would love stil take a photo in other country.

What legacy you will leave on?
“ayukong maging kilala or sumikat gustu ko alng tumatak”


Any final mesage? Its your time to shine.
- Sensei Axl thanks for this Blog nailabas ko yung mga opinyon ko at isa pa nagulat talaga ako kase nasa blog mo ako. Hinde naman ako magaling pero you deserve my works.. thanks sensei God bless
